    I was under the impression this was worth shit loads?

    infact when i checled it on discogs last (probably about 6 months ago) thoguht it was going for loads?

    i was very suprised when i just managed to pick it up for 2 quid.

    and to the fact theres loads of them cheap on discogs.

    so if anyones interested... bargain imo...

    Was re-pressed with both of the remixes

    Still nice to have the original though, I have two :) Not quite sure why though lol

    Well people aren't gonna carry on paying £20 for the original pressing when they can get the exact same tune plus a remix for £5.95 elsewhere lol

    i was hunting around this for ages around summer 2007 and found a decent priced one on discogs, when it came to getting delivered the bloke mugged me off and sent me the promo version of it, not quite the same. needless to say i bagged the original sin remix when it came out

    Once upon a time I was in a record shop in Bristol and they happened to be selling an original copy of The Nine in very good condition for £15, this guy comes up to me and says FUCKIN EL BRUV THEY GOT DA NINE U SHUD BUY IT BRUV ITZ WERF LIKE A HUNDRED QUID MATE U SHUD FUCKIN BUY DAT NOW BRUV IVE GOT A COPY AT HOME BUT ID BUY DAT RIGHT NOW IF I HAD DA MONEY ITS WERF LIKE A HUNDRED AND FIFTY QUID BRUV

    I just thought, what an idiot lol

    People have SERIOUS misconceptions when it comes to the valve of certain drum and bass records

    One that is particularly rare though and I would love to get my hands on is "Apollo Two (LTJ Bukem) - Atlantis"

    That record IS worth at least £30 guaranteed to whoever is lucky enough to get hold of it

    Question though, what's the bpm of the record? Could you pitch it up to about 180bpm (roughly normal set speed) on a standard set of Technics 1210 MK2s?

    Or is it not quite there?

    PM You?

    Yeah Atlantis might be like 165bpm if I remember correctly, which is pretty darn slow, I've got the mp3 from Bukem's album though, and Serato, so not all is lost, just a shame the vinyl doesn't quite stretch far enough with the pitch, about 168/169bpm is the very most I can get away with without slowing the pace of the set
